This is one gravy which is done quite easily and fast. It goes well with many Indian breakfast like Idli, Dosa, rava dosa, rava idli, Poha. The creaminess of this dish is the most welcome factor. When you don’t have enough veggies this is an apt gravy. I got to know about this from my roommates mom. She used to call this as Bombay chutney. I love ginger and she had used so much of ginger in this dish which made me love it. Recently I prepared it and here is the recipe…
